Glenfiddich Special Reserve 12yo
Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This distillery can safely be called a POWER brand. Glenfiddich has the largest distillery capacity in the world of malt whisky and its whiskies account for 20% of all malt whisky sales. That is fricking nuts.
In regular release, their line includes a no age statement malt, a 12 year old, a 12 year old Caoran Reserve, a 15 year old, an 18 year old, a 21 year old, a 30 year old, and a 40 year old.
For more Glenfiddich distillery information, please see past Malt Missions where a few of the above malts were tasted.
Melon rind, legumes, raw peanuts in their shells. Body lotion or face cream, unscented.
Sweet while in the mouth, vanilla, half&half cream, but turns malty and even peppery upon swallowing. Still nutty, but slightly more roasted. The finish is quite drying, slightly oaky, and grassy.
The ubiquitous bottle of whisky in 180 countries around the world, it doesn't need to stand out. Totally pleasant whisky with a long finish. Clean. Tidy. And yes, boring.
